Arxis was founded in 2014 by a team of experienced trading, risk management, quantitative research and technology executives from Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s Global Market Making business, together with seasoned market professionals from several other banks and trading firms.


Our name is derived from the Latin word Arx, meaning ‘stronghold.’ Like the Arx fortress that defended ancient Rome from the Capitoline Hill, we see Arxis Capital as a defensive structure for capital and clients interfacing with complex markets. Maintaining the highest level of risk management, compliance, capital preservation and client protection is at the heart of what we do.
